I have a few iterations of the women’s middle short and this one fits the best so far. The waistband is ever so slightly larger, whereas past seasons have been a bit tight. I’d say still tighter than most other brands in the same size. If you do have a proportionally small waist, there is a drawstring. The fabric doesn’t fold up when running, is super breathable/quick-drying, and I love the color!!
I'm a little new to the running scene. But a friend of mine showed me Janji and I have been a fan ever since! I love the patterns. The fit is fantastic! The waist band for this new drop is much better suited and the fabric doesn't sidle up in between my legs when I run! I love the size of the back pocket.
W's 3" AFO Middle Short in Steadfast Indigo
I’m fairly new to Janji, after finding out about them from a running group I joined in the spring, but I am HOOKED! The AFO Middle Shorts are my favorite shorts I’ve run in. I have 5 pairs from the Philippines and South Africa collections, and can’t wait to add more to my closet! These shorts are perfect for hot summer runs because they dry quickly and keep me cool. They fit really well (I wear a size XS), especially with the updated waist fit in the newer pairs. They feel so breezy when I run in them that I almost forget they’re there. I can’t recommend these enough!
I bought these because I love to run and run a few times a week buy also because I am planning a bike trip of about 250 miles next summer and wanted something that would pack down to almost nothing and be super comfortable. These shorts are IT! I LOVE them! They are lightweight, quick drying, and unmistakably different in the their style. My favorite part is just touching them because they are so soft-- they feel buttery! I am now looking at the other patterns wondering which would go best with what I already own. Janji makes quality gear and you won't regret the purchase!
